poems ruined by irritating musical backing

What disappointed you about The Classical Poetry Collection, Volume 3?

There is a loud musical backing to every poem as if they thought the poetry by itself not worth recording - as a result you strain to hear the words. Its an alarmingly stupid idea.

Has The Classical Poetry Collection, Volume 3 put you off other books in this genre?

yes

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

-

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Classical Poetry Collection, Volume 3?

-

Any additional comments?

There should be a clear warning of this and it should go under the separate genre of 'poetry set to music by idiots'

excellent in every way except for background music

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Excellent poems, and excellent readers, BUT I found the background music intrusive and completely unnecessary-- If you like poetry, you know it stands by itself. Having a sound tract is like listening to too song played simultaneously. arg!
